Hey Everyone! Welcome to the brand new Breedia website - which now also includes this forum Breedia is Dogsey's first 'puppy'! A spin-off site from the Dogsey Breed Profiles ...we thought they did such a great job promoting breeds, that they deserved their own site! But why stop there? Breedia is the perfect venue for lots, and lots of breed-specific forums, but interlinked, so having shared areas for everyone, as well as group type forums (such as a Gundogs, or Working Dogs Forums) as well. We think having shared areas like this will help tackle the boredom people often complain about on single-breed forums, that can sometimes be small and slow. As this is a spin-off site, we have also moved the threads from the Dog Breeds sections in Dogsey over to Breedia. This means that all Dogsey members can log in as well - so if you joined before 15 December 2013 you do not need to sign up here again - simply log in with your usual username or password - if that doesn't work, let me know by using the contact us page. Also, we may delete or archive any accounts that have not logged into Breedia within 6 months - so if you really want to keep your account here, be sure to log in! A fresh new site raring to take the dog breed space by storm ...I hope you like it here, and choose to make it a regular online hangout There are lots of great new features on this forum - here are a few worth mentioning: Watched forums You can watch (or subscribe to) any forum on Breedia - you need never miss a new thread about your breed again! Simply navigate to your breed's forum, then click on 'Watch Forum'. You can then specify whether you would like an email alert, or an on-site alert, or whether you just want to watch it so that it shows up in your watched list - which you can get to from the main nav at the top of this page. For now I suggest getting an email alert - you can always change the setting afterwards Follow Friends! You can now follow your friends! There are benefits in doing this (see below). Some of you will notice that you are already following people - these are people you added as a 'buddy' on Dogsey, and the people following you, are those that added you as a buddy. Chances are these are old though - because many of us stopped using the buddy system years ago, but still, it's nice that some of us come with ready made 'friends' Friends activity! You can easily stay up to date with what your friends are up to! This page (link in the main nav above) will show you what they have posted, and what posts or threads they have liked too This list shows activity for all members you are following. You can set who can follow you via your control panel. Upload images! You can now upload images directly into threads! Alerts! You get alerts for all sorts of things, from when you are quoted or @mentioned, to when a thread you are following was replied in. It's pretty neat - check it out! @mentions You can now mention your friends (eg, @Azz), and they get alerted ...if they have not turned it off that is Plus lots more! There really is a lot of features here, and some of our regulars on Dogsey helped test the new software last year, they loved it - I hope you will too! Please help spread the word If you know anyone who is fanatical about a breed, or dog breeds in general - please let them know about Breedia. We think Breedia just might become the definitive place to discuss (and hopefully, better) dog breeds everywhere - so if you know anyone into a breed, who might like to influence what's going on with their breed internationally as well as locally, please let them know about Breedia! If you have any suggestions, or feedback - please let me know! Enjoy!
